Description of Duties

The Radiation Safety Specialist's primary function would be to support PRRT/Lutathera radiopharmaceutical and other radiopharmaceutical therapies. This individual will perform radiation room preparations to minimize radioactive contamination of the patient's room which will reduce the risk for staff radioactive contamination, spread or transfer of radioactive contamination from the room and reduce radioactive decontamination time and effort post-therapy. After these treatments are complete, the specialist will remove all contaminated trash and linen to decay-in-storage, decontaminate the patient room and manage the radioactive waste generated. If time permits, this individual will support the Institute through various Radiation Safety Department tasks such as managing trash and waste that are found to be radioactive by Environmental Services, performing radiation surveys and wipe tests as well as any other appropriate Radiation Safety functions.


The applicant must have a Bachelor’s degree in Nuclear Medicine Technology; or a Bachelor’s degree in physical or biological science or engineering and the equivalent of two years of full-time experience working with radioactive materials. The preferred candidate will have Board certification in Nuclear Medicine Technology (NMTCB or ARRT[N]) or Radiation Protection Technology (NRRPT). Additional certifications such as CHP, ABSNM, ABR, ABMP, CLSO, CMLSO, CSP or CHMM are also preferred.
